Flavor: This is a cool, refreshing chew, but doesn't proclaim to overwhelm you with any extreme elements. It won't clear your sinuses, and if you're looking for something to kill particularly heinous garlic bread breath, you're better off with a Dentyne Artic Chill pellet. However, if you are looking for a nice mouth refresh in the middle of the day, this'll do it.
Texture: The firmness of it is nice, it's not too soft and not too hard, somewhere in the middle, leaning towards more firm. What I don't like about it is that it's really sticky. It sticks to my lips when I try to blow a little bubble, and it sticks to my teeth when I crack it.
Packaging: Marvel at its beauty. Gaze upon its splendor. I happened upon this Plen-T-Pak on the shelves of my local Family Dollar. I was taken aback, since it's been a long time since I've seen a Plen-T-Pak available. I have to assume this gum is many years old (2008 maybe?) but it tastes okay, there's no expiration date on it, and the pack is almost gone and I haven't gotten sick and died, so I assume it's okay. I thought that maybe I had discovered one of the last vestiges of a discontinued flavor, but a Google search revealed that Extra Winterfresh is, indeed, still a thing.
Overall: I was really surprised to see that Winterfresh is still readily available, because we've never reviewed it and I thought we pretty much ran through all the Extras. If I didn't come across this in Family Dollar, Winterfresh would most likely have remained unreviewed until the end of time. While it's nothing to write home about, it's good to know that it's a decent option if your old standby isn't available on your checkout line.
